  Algebra over a field   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In mathematics, an algebra over a field K, or a K-algebra, is a vector space A over K equipped with a compatible notion of multiplication of elements of A.
Algebras can also more generally be defined over any commutative ring K: we need a module A over K and a bilinear multiplication operation which satisfies the same identities as above; then A is a K-algebra, and K is the base ring of A.
For algebras over a field, the bilinear multiplication from A × A to A is completely determined by the multiplication of basis elements of A.

Similarly, for a "p-restricted Lie algebra" g over a field k of characteristic p>0, the restricted representations of g are the modules for the restricted enveloping algebra V(g).
For \pi a finite group and g a finite dimensional p-restricted Lie algebra, the algebras k\pi and V(g) are examples of a general class of algebras, the group algebras of finite group schemes.
One means of study of representations is to use cohomology which introduces algebro-geometric invariants associated to the commutative k algebra of even dimensional cohomology.

 Introduction   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
A basic algebra is a finite dimensional algebra A over a field, all of whose simple modules have dimension one.
In the literature such an algebra is known as a "split" basic algebra.
The algebra A is generated by elements a_1, a_2,..., a_t where a_1,..., a_s are the primitive idempotent generators and a_(s + 1),..., a_t are the nonidempotent generators.

 Vector (spatial) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
A spatial vector is a special case of a tensor and is also analogous to a four-vector in relativity (and is sometimes therefore called a three-vector in reference to the three spatial dimensions, although this term also has another meaning for p-vectors of differential geometry).
Vectors are the building blocks of vector fields and vector calculus.
Vectors can be contrasted with scalar quantities such as distance, speed, energy, time, temperature, charge, power, work, and mass, which have magnitude, but no direction (they are invariant under coordinate rotations).

One may consider that the algebraic complexity of basic linear algebra over an abstract field K is well known.
Indeed, if w is the exponent of matrix multiplication over a field K, for instance computing the determinant, the matrix inverse, the rank or the characteristic polynomial of an n x n matrix can be done in softO(n^w) operations in K (the same holds for the solution of many other problems).
For reducing the complexity, a main concern is to exploit the interplay of the algebraic structure with the intermediate expression swell.

 Introduction   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
An affine algebra in Magma is simply the quotient ring of a multivariate polynomial ring P = R[x_1,..., x_n] by an ideal J of P. Such rings arise commonly in commutative algebra and algebraic geometry.
The elements of affine algebras are simply multivariate polynomials which are always kept reduced to normal form modulo the ideal J of "relations".
If an affine algebra defined over a field has finite dimension considered as a vector space over the coefficient field, extra special operations are available on its elements.

This question gave birth to the study of finiteness conditions in algebra and led to the proliferation of Burnside type problems.
Recently Smoktunowicz constructed a 3 generated nil algebra over a denumerable field such that its algebra of polynomials with two commuting indeterminates is not nil.
Our algebras are also different from Smoktunowicz's as we carry out our construction over every field, which leads to absolutely nil algebras.

Of course the coefficient field and the generators must fit together; if we want to construct an algebra of ordinary matrices, we may take the field generated by the entries of the generating matrices, or a subfield or extension field.

 Affine Algebras which are Fields   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
If the ideal J of relations defining an affine algebra A = K[x_1,..., x_n]/J, where K is a field, is maximal, then A is a field and may be used with any algorithms in Magma which work over fields.
Note that an affine algebra defined over a field which itself is a field also has finite dimension when considered as a vector space over its coefficient field, so all of the operations in the previous section are also available.
Starting with the same affine algebra A = Q(a, b, x)F[y]/ as in the last example, we factor some univariate polynomials over A. A is of course isomorphic to an absolute field, but the presentation given may be much more convenient to the user.

Abstract: The gradings of associative algebras by groups has proven to be an extremely useful tool in examining the invariants of derivations and automorphisms.
